CGP Field Trip June, 2011

Field Trip to FFI CGP Sites FFI CGP team took a field trip to the project sites located in Tibetan communities on Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in June, 2011. Through this trip, we observed one of the most visible changes with CGP local partners was improvement of their capacity of project management and abilities to analyze problems and design action plans. Local communities actively participated in meetings and discussions to analyze problems and design feasible action plans to solve rangeland and livelihood problems within the communities. This change will be a guarantee for local herders to cope with the various changes of the rangeland and the influx of modern economy. Inside this issue: 1. Trip Objectives 2. Outputs of Visits 3.
